COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Perhaps no country embraces the use of fruit in beers more so than Belgium. Numerous traditional as well as regional specialty ales are infused with every sort of fruit imaginable. In this way, the flavor of the fruit becomes especially prominent. Red Poppy Ale is a veritable celebration of Sour Cherries in an explosion of aromas and tastes. Brewed from a brown ale base and aged in our oak barrels for over 6 months, this beer is not for the faint of heart. The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and the Red Poppy is found in Flanders Fields where our inspiration for this beer comes from.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber. Aroma is oak barrel, some wine, light cherry. Body is light, tart and sour. Fizzy carbonation to round of the super refreshing experience of this sour. Still fruity, being light but not lacking taste. Delightful!

Really impressed...A nice fruitiness and lace on the nose and appearance. Metallic and fruity and a bit of floral lead to a pretty clean cut mid taste, and then it disappears (in a good way). Love it.

heman (1003) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 5, 2016
Rubinowa barwa, piana redukuje się do obrączki. Przyjemna i umiarkowanie intensywna mieszanka nut świeżego soku z wiśni i stajennych: lekko skisłe siano, klepisko, spocony koń. W smaku piwo jest mocno kwaśne, ale pozbawione nut octowych. Mocne wysycenie dodatkowo podszczypuje język. Wiśnie, podrasowane są cierpkim posmakiem pestek lub drewna. W tle pojawiają się nuty dzikie w postaci siana. Finisz jest wytrawny, z niską, pestkową goryczką.

4.3
RickFifty (1254) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge. Mahogany brown color, beige head. Cherry nose, oak, sour candy, brown sugar, cherry pits. Sweet and sour taste, red berries, tart, brown sugar, floral, light malty and vinous notes, hint of dried fruit, moderate acidity. Rich, complex, smooth and balanced. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture.

AaronTDubs (500) - - NOV 25, 2016
Pour brown with a touch of red, bordering on copper. Nice lasting head. Good lacing. Clear cheery aroma, a bit of caramel, sour notes, some funky, woody, almost like bourbon, and flowers. Very dry flavor. Good tartness, not excessive. Lemony finish with some nuttiness fro the cherries. Touch of vinegar. Nice and refreshing.

3.7
dambor (700) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours ruby red with small head. Aroma: nice wild yeast aroma coupled with sour red fruit aroma. A touch of marzipan. Taste: nicely sour, but perfectly balanced with the body. Again nice red fruit, a touch of bacteria. Very balanced, nicely drinkable.
